Compression load cell
This type of load cells detect changes in workload to which they are subjected in different applications. The cell undergoes a deformation when it is subject to external load, the variation is detected by the strain gauge bridge located inside it, converting it into an electrical signal. The strain-gauges, electrically connected in a Wheatstone bridge configuration, detect the deformations in compression, automatically compensating the bending effect. The instruments are also compensated in temperature. In case of hars environments, the high sensor protection allows these instruments to be used without any risk of fault or malfunction. Furthermore, Gestecno supplies the load distribution plates to be interposed between the instrument and the reference surface, in order to improve performance and reduce errors due to difficult placement.
